Discounted JBI Adelaide Training Fees
JBI is committed to building and sustaining capacity across its network of Endorsed organisations. JBI and a growing number of its Collaborating Entities around the world offer a range of education and training courses for clinicians, managers, educators, academics and students from the fields of nursing, allied health, medicine, information science and the health sciences. JBI Endorsed organisations are eligible to access discounted course fees for JBI Adelaide Short Courses and Workshops: 20% for the Comprehensive Systematic Review Training Program, Clinical Leadership Workshop and GRADE Workshop, and 10% for the Evidence-based Clinical Fellowship Program.
Comprehensive Systematic Review Training
The Comprehensive Systematic Review Training Program prepares researchers and clinicians to develop, conduct and report comprehensive systematic reviews in order to provide the strongest possible evidence to inform decision making or clinical guidelines in healthcare.
Throughout this world-class systematic review training program, which incorporates both theory and hands on experience, participants learn how to develop a focused question, search for relevant literature, appraise and synthesise evidence arising from research. By the end of the program participants will have a completed protocol and be ready to commence a full review.
Evidence-based Clinical Fellowship Program
The Evidence-based Clinical Fellowship Program is offered by JBI in Adelaide as well as several Collaborating Entities globally. It provides clinicians, managers, policy makers and quality managers in healthcare with proven approaches to implementing evidence into practice. It is a six-month program which includes two one-week blocks of intensive workshops with an implementation project in the participant’s local institution between each workshop. At the end of the program, participants will have a report ready for publication in a peer-reviewed journal and accessible in international medical citation databases and Google Scholar.
Clinical Leadership Workshop
The Clinical Leadership Workshop enables clinical leaders and leaders-to-be from all healthcare disciplines to develop strategies related to clinical leadership and change management in health care using real world examples. This workshop provides participants with information and practical techniques to create a more positive, personal and professional culture back in their workplace. It also helps participants to identify strategies that will assist in managing difficult behaviour, building productive teams and implementing change, thereby enabling effective leadership of projects and people.
The 1-day GRADE workshop is designed for systematic reviewers, guideline developers and others wanting to learn more about GRADE methodology, particularly the creation of Summary of Findings tables and Evidence Profiles.
